Abstract:

This report is on a pilot study to demonstrate some of the capabilities of remote sensing in intelligence gathering. A wide variety of issues, both quantitative and qualitative, are addressed. SPOT satellite images were used for object classification using statistical and neural net techniques, object height determination and image resolution enhancement. A new procedure was developed for detecting small and man-made objects in multispectral or colour images. The procedure will be presented in a companion report.
